Danna Pycher – Hypnotherapist
What if I told you, you might not be who you think you are? What if I told you that your very perception or idea of who you are, has been weaved into your mind over time? What if you don’t agree with what your mind has to tell you?
I’ve always had an inquiring mind. I’ve always questioned everything. I felt the need to get to the bottom of everything and never took anything at face value. This ever curious personality would one day save my life. Let me tell you who I am.
Hi, I’m Danna. I’m a hypnotherapist specializing in trauma and chronic illness. I also do a lot of public speaking about the Holocaust, because I’m a third generation descendant, about trauma, and my favorite topic to speak about, the subconscious mind and how it works, because holy moly it’s fascinating.
I want to take you on a little journey today that will expose the connection between your mind, who you think you are, and the potential onset of disease. So if you may please follow along as we go through the human experience.
From conception until death. OK, so it won’t be that morbid. We, all of us, are born as blank slates. We, all of us, then through our experiences are programmed to have certain beliefs about who we are, what we can achieve in life, and what type of person we should be.
From birth until six, we are essentially living life in a hypnotic trance. It’s why we learn languages so quickly at this young age. We are sponges just joyously absorbing everything around us. At this precious age, we set up the rest of our lives, that’s right. What we learned from about the age of zero until six is essentially the patterns or programming we begin to develop from adolescence or from then and repeat again and again from adolescence into adulthood.
I want to tell you something that might offend you. People, we are patterns. I also want to relate something else to you. Sometimes our patterns do not serve us. Those patterns are called disease, depression, obesity, and the list unfortunately goes on and on.
OK, let’s rewind for a minute. I want to rewind to a really serious pattern that I had in the past. I had what’s called chronic fatigue syndrome, which later turned into fibromyalgia. Both are chronic illnesses that to put them lightly are no fun and to put them into context can be seriously debilitating.
